Life and Death in the New Testament: The Teachings of Jesus and Paul





This masterly book deals first with the fundamental problem of the language used in the New Testament to convey the message of Easter by examining the meaning of the actual words used by Christians before the Gospels took their written form. Was the language in which the "resurrection" was reported the only way in which the disciples' experience was described? Why is it that the evangelical descriptions of the event are different from that of Paul, who was the only witness to have written about the resurrection? Xavier Léon-Dufour examines these significant questions in depth and proposes a way of reading the evangelical texts in their own terms.
